Title from caption

"The object of this paper is to present, in the most elegant and available form, a weekly literary melange of notable events of the day. Its columns are devoted to original tales, sketches, and poems, by the best American authors, and the cream of the domestic and foreign news; the whole well spiced with wit and humor."

"Five preliminary numbers in quarto, with only a few woodcuts, were issued before the Pictorial published its volume 1, number 1, on May 3, 1851." Cf. Mott, F.L. A history of American magazines, v. 2, p. 409
